How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Whither Proton Chancellor?

When I had a closer look at one in a local showroom a few years ago, I was impressed with its plush interior...


(Courtesy of Mudah.my; not sure if this is the original leather seats, this being ex-Minister's)

It was described in its advertisement as an 'XL size Proton Waja', originally priced at Rm139,888!

Whoever made the final decision must have been crazy to expect prospective car buyers to pay that kind of money for a luxurious Waja. That it was described as one of 'less than 10 in the market' said it all about the big failure of another Proton model. Others included Juara (Roti van), Arena (pick-up), and even Savvy.

The spacious interior of the Chancellor gave me the idea at the time that it should have been made cheaper (not so luxurious), and with exemption from excise duty (not sure about this), aimed at the local taxi market. With a bit of arm-twisting and carrots in the form of incentives, it could have been a runaway success!
